Tame Pool-Based Pairwise Key Predistribution for Large-Scale Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Due to resource constraints on sensor nodes, public key cryptography is not desirable to use in sensor networks. In this paper, the authors first develop a novel tame-based key predistribution approach, where they exploit tame automorphisms to get symmetric and two-one bivariate maps for the pair-wise key establishment. This tame-based approach can provide deterministic authentication between two parties. They, then present a general framework for the key predistribution, on the basis of the tame-based approach. It turns out that this tame map can substitute the conventional polynomial in any existing polynomial-based scheme to offer deterministic authentication service. In particular, they further introduce a new key predistribution scheme, the local symmetric-tame maps predistribution scheme, based on this framework and the deployment information.
